What Niobe wants...

One of the Rhymes with Javelin rules appears to be that if Niobe proposes something, I will bite.

You're Thailand!

Calmer and more staunchly independent than almost all those around you,
you have a long history of rising above adversity.  Recent adversity has led to
questions about your sexual promiscuity and the threat of disease, but you still manage
to attract a number of tourists and admirers.  And despite any setbacks, you can
really cook a good meal whenever it's called for.  Good enough to make people

Take the Country Quiz
at the Blue Pyramid

Now what I want to know is how many times Niobe had to take it to get one so perfect?


The Goldfish said...

Oh my - I got "The United Nations" !!!

Jenny Davidson said...

I did too--pretty apt, eh, S.?!?

You're the United Nations!
Most people think you're ineffective, but you are trying to completely save the world from itself, so there's always going to be a long way to go. You're always the one trying to get friends to talk to each other, enemies to talk to each other, anyone who can to just talk instead of beating each other about the head and torso. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't, and you get very schizophrenic as a result. But your heart is in the right place, and sometimes also in New York.

Lichtenstein. "Most folks don't take you that seriously, but you really make a big deal out of being independent. You don't do a whole lot for other people, but you make the best of the resources available to you. You really like snow. And mountains. And being independent. And you're probably pretty small."


S. said...

Jenny and Goldfish, clearly this means you must immediately go to one another's sites and sample each other's archives.

Phantom: Double snort. :P

Lo said...

I got the U.N., too, and Co got Texas. Neither of which are countries. Humph.

Just once. I swear. No, really.

S. said...

Lo, I think that you would find that Texas would disagree with you on that one.

Niobe, Hmmmmmm. And I'll say it again: Hmmmmmm.

I got Ireland!
"Mystical and rain-soaked, you remain mysterious to many people, and this makes you intriguing. You also like a good night at the pub, though many are just as worried that you will blow up the pub as drink your beverage of choice. You're good with words, remarkably lucky, and know and enjoy at least fifteen ways of eating a potato. You really don't like snakes."
Pretty accurate (I'm half Liverpool Irish on my mother's side) apart from the snakes!

I said this at Niobe's...I got Germany, which gives me the creeps - both because I don't much like Germany, and I'm about half German by ancestry. Argh.

S. said...

(un)relaxeddad, if that's accurate, how do the altars work with the blowing-up-pubs thing?

Magpie, I took this twice just see what happened and the test itself is hilarious b/c each answer determines a different next question. I recommend taking it again if you don't like what you got the first time--just change your first answer and you'll be taking a completely different test.

(And no, I'm not telling!)
